Prepare for four days of extraordinary

Where: Cheltenham Racecourse

When: Tuesday, March 10, to Friday, March 13

From the roar of the crowd, to the thrill of the action, The Jockey Club opens its doors for four of the biggest days in sport as over 260,000 people flock through the gates when Jump racing's top protagonists take to their greatest stage from March 10-13, at The Festival™ presented by Magners.

New for 2020, we have the perfect spot for the idyllic Instagram photo, welcome to The Park. With live music from top DJs such as Nick Grimshaw, Laura Whitmore, Roman Kemp and Marvin Humes, The Park will be a hive of fun, style and the perfect spot for racegoers looking to combine the action on the track with the fun of a day at the races.

In addition, The Orchard™ returns for a second year and will be home to brands such as Boodles and Bentley. New for 2020 in The Orchard will be The Pods. Each Pod, with its own balcony, will be available to hire accommodating 12-20 guests.

The Hospitality available at The Festival is world class and over 45,000 meals are plated up throughout the four days. In true British style, over 9,000 gallons of tea and coffee are consumed, with nine tons of locally produced potatoes and five tons of locally sourced salmon devoured throughout the week.

With award-winning venues such as The Horse and Groom Pub and Theatre@ The Festival as well as enjoying the company of the iconic Roux Family in Chez Roux amongst the 255 hospitality options available, there is certain to be something for every palate.

Four days of extraordinary await in March as Champions return to retain their crown, while others battle to steal the limelight.

A week of drama and high emotion, with moments of pure theatre thrown in for good measure. The Festival 2020 is set to have it all.
